Fancy Dream Wedding - An Eventective User from Houston texas

When I entered the hall I could not stop smiling. It was everything I dreamed of, and more. The location was breathtakingly gorgeous and in the heart of the City. Since ours was an October wedding, we did the entire reception indoors. The weather was perfect which helped, as the guest that came from the suburbs reached on time without traffic. We had 250 people with a buffet dinner. Our wedding coordinator and was amazing and she ensured that everything ran smoothly during the entire day. The staff at the hotel ensured that our wedding was free of any drama, and that it was perfect. It was the picture perfect location and the wedding pictures showed how much fun all of us had. The sound system, lighting, decoration, everything to the last detail worked glitch free, many people have terrible experiences but the staff at crowne plaza ensured that our wedding was an amazing experience for both of us. For the day we were treated as celebrities, right from the time we entered the hotel to the end of the reception our experience was truly memorable. The Hotel helped us manage everything; they even looked after the gifts we had received at the wedding. Even though we ended up with a little over 250 guests, the staff was quick to make arrangements for them too and within no time they were seated and ready to have a good time. All in all we had truly a Fairytale wedding. I highly recommend Crowne Plaza to anyone who is looking to have a good time at their wedding.

More Than I Excpected - An Eventective User from Los Angeles, CA

recently my company had a three day long convention. We had to fly to Houston, and to be honest I wasn't really looking forward to the trip. Who would be, three days of nothing but work, and not being able to come home to my family every night. Well, when we got there I was immediately impressed with how beautiful everything was. We had someone deliver our baggage to our rooms, and we went to eat. We ate on site and the food was INCREDIBLE! I have not eaten that well in a very long time. After dinner I went back to my room to relax, I knew the next day would be long. I called down to the front desk and they setup a wake up call for me. I had them setup two, because with my past experience with hotels, I've learned its always best to setup two. Anyway, I was surprised that the next morning, I actually did get two very friendly wake-up calls. The meeting space was very big and very nice. We even had food and drinks waiting for us when we got there. They provided extra things like note pads, pens, etc. If we did ever need anything, instead of taking a break and running around trying to find it, all we had to do was call down for it. Everything was done so nice and professionally. I was very impressed all around. Everyday after the meetings were over, we'd all go out on the town. The staff was so helpful! It wasn't just regular hotel recommendations, but they gave us their personal recommendations. It felt like we were visiting friends after the first night. So I really enjoyed my time there. We've had meetings at other venues and you could hear other meetings through the wall, and here everything was silent! We got our work done much quicker! Everyone had a great time thanks to the incredible staff at the Crowne!
